You may have heard of NLP, but if you haven't it's not your fault: Neuro Linguistic Programming (fittingly) has been simmering below the surface of the public consciousness for a few decades now. NLP is the study of how our minds use, interpret and process language and thought. This seemingly geeky subject turns out to be incredibly fun and useful, if you can figure it out. Using NLP in your day to day life effectively is kinda like the 'stop the bullets in mid-air' scene in The Matrix. Yes, I'm talking about hypnosis. Buckle up.

To start, I found the title 'Frogs into Princes' (though obscure to the casual Barnes and Noble shopper) brilliant in what this book is attempting to do. As any Westerner reading this will immediately understand, the reference is to many a fairy tale about a princess's relationship with a shapeshifting frog (in some versions, the princess would turn a frog into a prince with her kiss). Presumably, there is supposed to be a lesson in there about how looks can be deceiving (don't judge a book by its cover etc), but there's more to it than that. The writers of this book, esteemed NLP researchers and pioneers Richard Bandler and John Grinder, were therapists. This book is actually a transcription of a three day course given to NLP Students who wanted to use the ideas to treat and heal psychologically damaged patients. The idea is that if you can change the way people see the world, you can give them a better outlook, and they'll go back to being healthy happy productive members of society. Sound crazy? What do you think Tony Robbins has been doing for the last 30 years?

Okay, let's dig in: Neuro Linguistic Programming (in laymans terms: using language to train/encode the mind) is the process of talking someone (eg.

This was the first book I read from R. Bandler about NLP.
To me it was fantastic, techniques were easy to understand and apply.

When I was 22 years old still looking for a door to enlightenment I thought it would be good idea improve myself by using NLP.

I learned and use those techniques in almost any of my habits, wishes, desires, thoughts...
What amazed me was that I could do it by myself, I didn't need a therapist or psychologist, or any kind of " profissional-ist"... I could read and apply most of the techniques in there.

NLP is non-orthodox method, I mean, if you are looking for Eric Berne, Young, Adler, Reich... you will not find it here. But if you are looking for fun, creativity, auto development I recoment this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is a transcript of a three-day training delivered By Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970's. It provides useful insights into their thinking and the basic elements of many NLP techniques. I believe many current NLP Practitioners who use the 'packaged' NLP scripts would benefit from understanding the basic underlying structure and processes presented in this book.

In a way, this book pre-dates techniques and encourages the practitioner to rely on their sensory acuity, anchoring, process elicitation, etc. without worrying which technique to use. For the reader just starting out, having a good introductory NLP book available as a reference would be useful as some of the discussion may leave the novice wondering.

I love this book. Although I read the ones following it first, this book gives the basis for the following books. The writing style of a transcript from a teaching seminar makes it easy to see Grinder and Bandler explaining the processes and how to use them.

I have been on a quest to read these older books again and have been getting great enjoyment out of them.
